Sure Jackson County’s wrestling team will experience change this season.
Seven spots in the lineup need filling and the Panthers have relocated to a region that includes stalwart Jefferson and a host of other formidable teams.
That doesn’t mean the focus strays from the norm at Jackson County, which finished no. 6 in Class AAA last year.
“The goal is no different than any other year — high expectations,” coach Jason Powers said.
Specifically, Powers expects Jackson County — which joins Region 8-AA — to be in the running for a return trip to the state duals in January and a big year at the traditional state meet come February.
